The best thing about the motel is it has a good location in Perth and is reasonably priced for Perth centre. The rooms are generally clean but very tired and rough round the edges. The rooms are very old in style and reminded me of what I would expect from army barracks accommodation. Would be fine for a group of friends having a night out round perth but not really great for couples.

This hotel does exactly what it says on the tin, it is 3 star accommodation in a 5 star location, and I can only assume those making negative comments below have either never stayed in a 3 star hotel before, or not bothered to research their accomodation properly, read any reviews, or looked at City Waters' website. This applies particularly to 'gitgit' who comes from Perth, and would have ample opportunity to have a look before staying. City Waters are completely open and transparent about what they offer. This was our 4th stay, en route to home in the UK, we have no complaints, will be staying again, and would unreservedly recommend this hotel for what it is.

This is right on the water, next to the Bell Tower, very close to the CBD and the airport. So location is perfect. It is an old fashioned motel style with parking in between rooms, air con is noisy but ear plugs can fix that. Furniture and room are quite old except the kitchen which is quite good.
Overall very good value for money in Perth!

I dont know where to start.
After a long drive with a toddler in the car we just want to get there and when we got there we see the car park its so limited and quiet dodgy.its not like i dont know how to park a car but I'm scared of other people might crash into out car.
We finally got the room and put the aircond on because it was about 40degress out there buts the aircond stinks like old socks it was HORRIBLE the room is so dark n quiet dusty in the window.
The bedding n the pillow case got stains and at night the aircond was so noisy we hardly get any sleep at all.but because this place do PATS thats why we chosed this place but next time we wont stay here again.And plus yes the lady in the front office abit rude.

I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights. The rooms are dark, dingy and outdated. The sheets must have been older than we were. The pillow had an oily stain on it and the bathroom towels smelt. It felt like a prison.

The service we received was terrible. The woman behind the desk was very rude and very inflexible. We were not going to write a negative review until the woman spoke to us so badly after a simple request.

Do not stay here it will ruin your holiday! The only this it has going for it is the location so you can get out of the prison style block as quickly as possible.
